Super Bowl commercials

Complaints about the inability to view the ads are prevalent in Canada, where federal "simsub" regulations require pay television providers to replace feeds of programs from U. In , the CRTC , Canada's telecom regulator, enacted a policy to forbid the use of simsub during the Super Bowl, citing viewer complaints and a belief that these ads were an "integral part" of the game; Super Bowl LI was the first game to fall under this policy.

The NFL's Canadian rightsholder Bell Media challenged the policy at the federal appeals court , arguing that it violated the Broadcasting Act by singling out a specific program for regulation, and devalued its broadcast rights to the game.

Super Bowl games have frequently been among the United States' most watched television broadcasts ; Super Bowl XLIX in set an all-time record for viewership at the game, with an average of As such, airing a commercial during the Super Bowl can be valuable for advertisers seeking an audience for their products and services.

Because of the overall buzz surrounding them, commercials aired during the Super Bowl receive additional airplay and exposure outside of the game as well, such as during newscasts and morning shows. The popularity of video sharing websites such as YouTube have also allowed Super Bowl advertisements to become viral videos ; [3] to take advantage of this, a growing number of advertisers have elected to post previews of their commercial, or even the full-length commercial, online prior to the game.

By Sunday, the ad had already received over 16 million views, and went on to be the most shared Super Bowl advertisement ever. Owing to the large potential audience, the network broadcasting the Super Bowl can also charge a premium on advertising time during the game. While Fox had negotiated ad sales for overtime in the event it were to occur, it is unknown whether the network charged a premium on top of the base cost.

The high cost of purchasing advertising time, on top of the cost of producing the commercial itself, has led to concerns by marketers that the increased sales that can result from a Super Bowl commercial does not recoup the cost of buying the ad time.

Some advertisers, including Dr. As the Winter Olympics marked the first time since that the Winter Olympics and Super Bowl were shown by the same network in a single year, NBC offered advertisers the opportunity to purchase packages of time for their ads covering both Super Bowl LII and the Olympics. NBC stated that doing so would allow advertisers to amortize their expenses through additional airplay during the Olympics.

Many Super Bowl advertisements have become iconic and well-known because of their quality, unpredictability, humor, and use of special effects. In recent years, advertisers have also attempted to stand out from others by producing ads with cinematographic qualities, and ads that channel emotions and real-world issues.

A number of brands, including Budweiser , Coca-Cola , and Master Lock , have been well known for their frequent appearances as advertisers during the Super Bowl. Several notable commercials aired during Super Bowl games during the s. In a commercial during Super Bowl IV in , Chicago Bears linebacker Dick Butkus endorsed Prestone , a brand of antifreeze , stating the tagline, "Because plugging holes is my business.

Later in the decade, Fawcett would become better known for her role on the television series Charlie's Angels. At Super Bowl XI in , Xerox aired an advertisement entitled "Monks"; starring Jack Eagle as Brother Dominic—a monk discovering that he could create copies of a manuscript using a new Xerox photocopier. The advertisement was so well received that Brother Dominic became the mascot of Xerox for years afterward.

Xerox premiered a new version of "Monks" in January although not as a Super Bowl ad , which updated the premise of the original ad to feature the company's modern products.

Among the most prominent of campaigns during early Super Bowl games were those of Master Lock. In , the company had first run a television commercial demonstrating the strength of its padlocks , by having a person shoot it with a handgun in a failed attempt to breach it. The campaign was pulled after the company's advertising director, Edson F.

Allen, realized the stunt could be imitated by those who were unsure of the commercial's authenticity. By the s, Allen discussed the possibility of reviving the concept, but using a rifle rather than a handgun to make it harder to imitate. The resulting commercial would premiere in during Super Bowl VIII ; despite concerns by the staff of Master Lock and their agency, Campbell Mithun , over the content of the ad, the commercial was well received by the general public.

When Cramer-Krasselt took over as Master Lock's agency later in the year, the company decided to make the gun ads a tradition, and began to produce new ads themed around the concept including one featuring skeptics of previous editions of the ad, and one showcasing the company's major corporate clients for future Super Bowls during the subsequent decades aside from a brief hiatus in and , and the early s. Allen went as far as describing the ads as an "event" that continued to attract media attention after the game.

Master Lock's yearly Super Bowl commercials accounted for nearly all of the company's annual advertising budget. The advertisement was filmed in and premiered that October, but did not gain mainstream attention until its airing during Super Bowl XIV. The ad also became the subject of parodies on television series, such as The Simpsons , and in other ads. Continuing an ongoing theme in the promotion of Coke Zero, the ad was interrupted by a Coca-Cola "brand manager" accusing Polamalu of "stealing" their commercial; in response, Polamalu tackled him and ripped off his shirt to give to the child.

The ad saw Greene reprise his role, but having the young fan throw Downy Unstoppables fabric softener to Greene instead of Coca-Cola, and the fan rejecting his jersey because it smelled.

Coca-Cola has also used the Super Bowl for other campaigns: However, the ad attracted controversy due to its use of a multilingual rendition of " America the Beautiful " as its soundtrack. The advertisement, which incorporated elements inspired by the novel Nineteen Eighty-Four , featured a woman wearing track-and-field clothing including orange pants and a white shirt branded with an image of the Macintosh sprinting into a large auditorium and hurling a large hammer into a screen displaying a large Big Brother -like figure speaking to a massive assembly of drone-like people in the audience , concluding with the message "On January 24, Apple Computer will introduce the Macintosh.

As the agency wanted "" to be eligible for that year's industry awards, which were only open to ads that aired during , a low-profile premiere of the ad occurred on the Twin Falls, Idaho station KMVT on December 31, shortly before midnight. The ad, which featured blindfolded businessmen walking over the edge of a cliff in unison, was criticized for its "dark" theme and exaggerated premise. By contrast, "Lemmings" has been considered to be one of Apple's worst television advertisements.

The beer brand Budweiser has long been a Super Bowl fixture. Its parent company Anheuser-Busch held a long-term contract with the NFL that allowed it to buy several slots of air time from the game's broadcaster each year at a steep discount, a contract that ran through Super Bowl 50 ; [21] the company continues to buy multiple commercials in each game. As of , Budweiser had won the survey thirteen times in fifteen years; its advertisement entitled "Brotherhood" focused on the relationship and emotional reunion of a clydesdale with its original trainer three years after leaving to become a Budweiser Clydesdale.

The advertisement attracted controversy among supporters of U. A boycott effort also emerged among Trump supporters. However, Budweiser's social media outlets promoted "ClydesdaleCam", a Facebook live stream of the Clydesdales watching the game in a stable and waiting to see their cameo. In , Budweiser broadcast "Stand by You", an ad which chronicled Anheuser-Busch's disaster relief program of distributing cans of drinking water from its brewery in Cartersville, Georgia.

The Clydesdales were, once again, downplayed from its television spots, with the brewery only airing a 5-second bumper in the second quarter to promote its streaming ClydesdaleCam event. Budweiser has introduced other campaigns during the Super Bowl as well.

Proving popular, the Bud Bowl would return at subsequent Super Bowls; it had become so popular that some viewers actually wagered on the outcome of the Bud Bowl as if it were an actual event.

The frog ads were a major success for the brewery after the game, and ranked as one of its most popular advertising campaigns following its premiere. Anheuser-Busch has aired commercials for other beer brands during the game alongside Budweiser, such as Budweiser Black Crown, and Beck's Sapphire.

Chrysler , and the marques of its current parent company Fiat Chrysler Automobiles , have made repeated appearances during the Super Bowl. From through , Chrysler became known for running several notable long-form ads; [74] at Super Bowl XLV , Chrysler aired a two-minute long ad entitled " Born of Fire " to launch the Chrysler and the company's new slogan "Imported from Detroit". The ad featured scenes depicting the history and revitalization of Detroit , as well as local rapper Eminem and his song " Lose Yourself ".

The commercial recounted the automotive industry crisis of —10 , set to scenes showing Americans in despair, but then in hope. How do we come together? And how do we win? Super Bowl XXXIV became notable for featuring a large number of commercials from dot-com companies , to the extent that critics dubbed it the "Dot-com Super Bowl".

Despite their aspirations and the boosts in traffic they received from the ads, all of the publicly held companies which advertised saw their stocks slump after the game as the dot-com bubble began to rapidly deflate. Some of the companies that advertised during the game—including Epidemic Marketing and Pets. What are you doing with your money? In , Doritos began holding a promotion known as Crash the Super Bowl , soliciting viewers to film their own Doritos commercials to possibly be aired during the game.

The ad featured an office worker attempting to fulfill a prediction that he would receive free Doritos by smashing open a vending machine with a crystal ball. A finalist, "UnderDog", reached second place on the poll. The domain registrar and web hosting company GoDaddy was well known for producing Super Bowl commercials featuring female spokespersons it dubbed "GoDaddy Girls", such as professional driver Danica Patrick , and for its ad, comedian Joan Rivers.

The company's first appearance at Super Bowl XXXIX parodied the " wardrobe malfunction " that had occurred at last year's halftime show, [94] featuring a woman testifying to Congress about why GoDaddy wanted to advertise during the game, but a strap of her tank top coming undone.

The ad was scheduled to air twice, but its second airing was pulled in response to concerns by Fox and the NFL over its content. In turn, the ad was replaced with one advertising the availability of the ad on GoDaddy's website, attracting two million visits. We may be changing our approach, but as we've always said, we don't care what the critics think. We are all about our customers. GoDaddy's ad in , "Journey Home", was controversial for different reasons: The ad was criticized by animal rights groups, who felt that it implied an endorsement of commercial puppy mills.

PETA partially praised the ad for portraying the seller as being a "callous jerk", but explained that "The sale of animals online and from pet stores and breeders should be roundly condemned, and it was today. GoDaddy did the right thing by swiftly promoting adoption. As a byproduct of the increased cost of ad time at the Super Bowl, financial software company Intuit made its debut at Super Bowl XLVIII by hosting a promotion known as "Small Business Big Game", in which small businesses with "inspiring" stories competed for a chance to earn a commercial during the Super Bowl funded by Intuit, as decided by user votes.

Smith explained that the promotion was an extension of the company's goals to improve financial lives "in a way that you'd never imagine going back", while Ken Wach, senior vice president of marketing for Intuit's Small Business Group, explained that "normally you're looking at Budweiser ads or Chevy ads, so this was about putting small businesses on the national stage and shining the spotlight on them as heroes of the economy. The winner of the edition was GoldieBlox , a toy company with a focus on promoting mechanical engineering to young girls.

Disney Parks is known for an advertising campaign associated with the Super Bowl entitled "What's Next? The ads feature a player from the winning team typically the MVP responding with the eponymous declaration after being asked what they would do after the game. These ads typically premiere on the day after the Super Bowl.

At Super Bowl XL , Disney aired an in-game commercial themed around the campaign, featuring Pittsburgh Steelers and Seattle Seahawks players rehearsing the line in case they won. In order to dodge the high costs of obtaining national ad time, or to broadcast more regionalized campaigns, some advertisers elect to purchase local advertising time from the individual network affiliates airing the Super Bowl, such as the Church of Scientology —who bought local ad time in major urban markets such as New York City in , and the Bank of Montreal to promote its BMO Harris Bank branches.

In , several notable local ads were broadcast. The Utah Department of Transportation used the game to broadcast a public service announcement on seat belt usage for its Zero Fatalities campaign, which featured a depiction of a child who had died in a rollover crash because he did not use a seat belt. In , Newcastle Brown Ale bought time on local NBC stations to air an ad that, as a commentary on the high cost of national Super Bowl advertising time, contained plugs for 37 other products and companies it had recruited in a crowdfunding campaign.

Louis attorney Terry Crouppen aired a local ad in which he criticized Stan Kroenke for his decision to re-locate the St. Louis Rams to Los Angeles. In , some Canadian companies bought local advertising time from Fox affiliates carried in the country, taking advantage of a new regulatory policy that made the Super Bowl available directly from U.

The dealership admitted that the ad was a "last minute calculated risk" and based on odds favoring the team. A number of Super Bowl commercials have been considered controversial by viewers and critics, or even outright blocked by networks' Standards and Practices departments, because of concerns surrounding their contents. Political advertising and most direct forms of issue-related advertising are usually not aired during the Super Bowl because of equal-time rules or other factors, [] while the NFL forbids ads for gambling, hard liquor, and banned substances from airing during any of its telecasts.

In the commercial, a barefoot Kenyan runner is tracked by a group of Caucasian men in a Humvee. The runner is offered drug-laced water which knocks him unconscious; when he wakes up, the runner discovers that the men had given him Nike shoes. The runner rejects the shoes and attempts to shake them off whilst running away. Then the ad runs. And you would not believe the deluge of comments made about this company.

I couldn't sleep for a solid month. And it's all because of these guys who said they knew everything. It was later found that the company had been engaging in accounting fraud. At Super Bowl XLI , General Motors aired a second ad entitled "Robot", which was meant to promote the powertrain warranty it offered for its vehicles. Themed around an "obsession" with quality, the ad depicted an assembly line robot being fired for dropping a screw. After attempting several alternative careers, the robot is depicted committing suicide by rolling off the edge of a bridge into a river.

The sequence is interrupted to reveal that the events were just a dream, and that the robot had not been fired at all. The AFSP stated that "the ad, in its carelessness, portrays suicide as a viable option when someone fails or loses their job. A GM spokesperson defended the commercial as being "a story of GM's commitment to quality", and stated that this was "the predominant impression by previewers of the ad".

GM pulled the original version of the ad from its YouTube page, and edited the ad to remove the suicide scene from future airings. Prior to becoming pregnant with Tim, and while serving as Baptist missionaries in the Philippines , Pam had contracted amoebic dysentery and fell into a coma.

She discovered she was pregnant while recovering. Because of the medications used to treat her, the fetus experienced a severe placental abruption. The Tebows decided against it, citing their strong faith. The ad itself made no reference to abortion or Christianity, and directed viewers to the organization's website. The then-unseen ad drew criticism from some women's rights groups, who asked CBS to pull the ad because they felt it would be divisive.

However, CBS stated that "we have for some time moderated our approach to advocacy submissions after it became apparent that our stance did not reflect public sentiment or industry norms on the issue. Avid Life Media , an operator of online dating services , has had two Super Bowl ads rejected by broadcasters.

Biderman considered the NFL demographic to be a core audience of the site, and promised to "find a way to let them know about the existence of this service. The ad featured two male football fans reaching into the same bowl of chips, and after a brief pause, passionately kissing and dry humping each other, much to the surprise of another man present. Company spokesperson Elissa Buchter considered the rejection to be discrimination, by contending that CBS would not have objected to the ad had it featured a kiss between a man and a woman, and acknowledging the frequent airplay of advertisements for erectile dysfunction medications on U.

Fellow spokesperson Dominic Friesen stated that the company was "very disappointed" of CBS's decision, noting that the network had allowed the aforementioned Focus on the Family ad to air during the game. Avid Life was also accused of ambush marketing by critics, who argued that the company was intentionally submitting ads that would get rejected by broadcasters and receive free publicity from the ensuing controversy, thus removing the need to actually buy ad time during the game.

However, the company denied these claims, and indicated that it did have serious intentions to purchase ad time during the game if its commercials were accepted. Animal rights activist organization People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals , known for its salacious and shocking publicity stunts , has routinely submitted Super Bowl ads that have been rejected.

Most of the advertisements have been explicitly sexual in nature. In , PETA submitted a blasphemous advertisement instead, with a priest portrayed by James Cromwell telling a meat industry executive that he could not be forgiven for the sins of what PETA claimed were deceptive advertisements, even if he confessed. NBC expressed willingness to air the advertisement on the condition that the organization would buy additional ads during the Winter Olympics , which would have doubled the price; PETA refused and accused the network of price gouging.

In , Randall Terry attempted to use a provision in Federal Communications Commission policies requiring "reasonable access" to local advertising time for political candidates within 45 days of an election or primary, to force several NBC stations to air a graphic anti-abortion attack ad during Super Bowl XLVI that featured images of blood-covered fetuses. Following a complaint by the Chicago-based NBC-owned station WMAQ , the FCC ruled that Terry could not expect reasonable access to advertising time during the Super Bowl because of the magnitude of the event and the limited amount of local advertising time available.

Furthermore, it was also found that Terry did not show enough evidence that he was a bona fide candidate eligible to receive ad time in the first place. Critics interpreted the ad as being in support of re-electing Barack Obama , suggesting that the metaphor of " halftime in America" symbolized the performance of Obama's first four-year term as president going into his re-election campaign, and noting Obama had supported George W.

Bush 's bailout of Chrysler whilst acting as a Democratic senator. Eastwood would later appear as a surprise guest at the Republican National Convention in support of nominee Mitt Romney , addressing an empty chair meant to represent Obama. In , SodaStream submitted a Super Bowl advertisement directed by Alex Bogusky , which featured a pair of Coca-Cola and Pepsi deliverymen finding their bottles exploding and disappearing when another person uses the SodaStream to make their own beverages; representing a disruption of the soft drink market.

The ad was rejected by CBS for its direct attacks towards the two rival companies. An older SodaStream commercial was shown in its place, which also featured exploding pop bottles in a similar fashion, but with no direct references to any other brand; [] ironically, this particular ad had been banned in the United Kingdom by Clearcast for being considered "a denigration of the bottled drinks market.

Another SodaStream ad featuring Scarlett Johansson was produced for and aired during Super Bowl XLVIII in ; the supposed rejection of an initial version for containing the line "Sorry, Coke and Pepsi" was overshadowed by growing controversies around the company's use of a factory that was located in an Israeli settlement on the West Bank.

In , Coca-Cola aired a Super Bowl advertisement entitled "It's Beautiful"; themed around multiculturalism , the ad featured scenes depicting Americans of various ethnicities , along with a same-sex couple —the first to ever appear in a Super Bowl ad, set to a rendition of the patriotic hymn " America The Beautiful " with lyrics sung in multiple languages.

The ad was divisive, with users taking to Twitter under the hashtag " SpeakAmerican" to discuss their views and opinions on its content: Guardian writer Jill Filipovic noted that the company had been increasingly targeting minorities, such as Latino Americans who are more likely to be heavy drinkers of soft drinks because of their low cost and drew comparisons to the marketing of cigarettes to women, but that "before we applaud Coke's advertising diversity, we should ask: The commercial was re-aired prior to kickoff at Super Bowl LI , eliciting similar criticism.

The second of these advertisements, "Boy" also commonly referred to as "Make Safe Happen" , [] featured a child explaining that he couldn't grow up because he had already died—followed by scenes of an overflowing bathtub implying drowning , spilled cleaning products implying poisoning , and a television having fallen off of a wall.
